Ive been trying to open my own bank account for about 10 years now and STILL cant!!!! (previous to this i used someone elses account, but need my own account now)
Ive been to the HSBC who tell me they will ONLY accept a passport as ID.
Llyods bank will accpet a passport and accept a provisinal licience
I dont not have any of these forms of ID. ( and its very difficult for me to get them at the moment)
I have a DRs letter were she says has known me for over 15 years and endorsed my photo were the dr says on the back of the photo that this is a true likness of the named person in the photo attached to this letter.
Does anyone know of any bank that will allow me to open an account with this ID? what about barcalys or bank of scotland ect?
It seems incredible to me that the ID from my Dr can be used to obtain a provisional license which in turn can open a bank account, so why cant the drs letter be used directly by a bank instead of at first using my DRs ID to obtain the provisional liecence????
Its seems complete madness !
Or better still is there an online bank that i can aplie for online, that will DEFINITLY accept me without a passport nor provisional license.
But the online account needs to have a cash card so I can order stuff via the internet ect.
Oh and I want an account with NO charges whatsoever aslong as I dont go over drawn whIch I neever do.
I only need a bank account so can have my benefit paid in, otherwize id have nothing whatsoever to do with banks, they absolutely rip people off!
I NEVER KNEW HOW IT WUD BE SO DIFFICULT TO DO JUST THE SIMPLEST OF THINGS LIKE OPEN A BANK ACCOUNT!!!!!!!!!!
